Significant Upcoming Alliance Events
April 8, 2016
There will be several important events upcoming for the Alliance and its members over the next few weeks. We would encourage member participation to whatever extent is possible.
- Commissioner Califf to Speak at Alliance Quarterly Member Meeting – April 19th. Come join us on April 19 at 2 p.m. to hear newly confirmed FDA Commissioner Robert Califf talk about his priorities and the challenges facing FDA. The room is filling up quickly, so if you plan to come, please RSVP to Lynnette Bechtel by e-mail. A short Alliance business meeting will follow Dr. Califf’s presentation.
- Food Stakeholder Meeting with FDA – May 3rd. As part of the Deputy Commissioner for Food transition, Mike Taylor and Steve Ostroff have agreed to meet with the Alliance at 1 p.m. on May 3rd at the White Oak Building. The purpose of the discussion will be the status of FSMA implementation and associated funding needs. Again, please RSVP to Lynnette Bechtel if you can make it.
- Alliance’s FDA 101 Hill Day – May 4th. We spend the first few months of the year meeting with appropriators and authorizers plus congressional offices that have FDA in their jurisdiction. Beyond that, there is great value in educating a broader group of congressional offices about FDA’s important work. Please put a note on your calendar and join us on May 4! And please RSVP to Lynnette Bechtel if you can join us.
